194 Mir Hussein Mahdavi ( Sept. 16, 2013)
Imagine that your entire life's work and identity are bound up with your mother-tongue. Then imagine that you are forced into exile & must start over in a new language and culture. Think Beethoven & deafness. This is the story of Afghan poet, Mir Hussein Mahdavi. He says he would be a different person in Farsi, but you will be so happy to meet this brilliant man in English.
